This report is a manual for the administration and the analyses of the Trust in Teams and Trust in Leaders Scales (Adams & Sartori, 2005). It begins with an overview of the trust construct and describes the conceptual framework underlying the scale. The Trust in Teams Scale and Trust in Leaders Scale can be used by researchers to study trust in small teams and trust in direct leaders of small teams. These scales are designed to primarily tap person-based trust that accrues as the direct result of personal experience and shared history. Although constructed within a military context, items are generic to small teams in general. The empirical studies that produced, refined and validated the measures are also briefly described. A response scale template is also provided. Instructions for administration and analyses of each of the scales are outlined. The 20 items comprising the Trust in Teams and the Trust in Leaders Scales are presented.
